Boys’ Division Contributes to The Elements Song

Chemistry students and teacher Dr Kristy Turner at Bolton School Boys’ Division have helped celebrate the end of the international year of the Periodic Table with a contribution to the elements song.

Tom Lehrer’s elements song – written 60 years ago when there were only 102 known elements - is a big favourite with school students. This year is the International Year of the Periodic Table and the magazine Chemistry World recently sought contributions to an updated song. Members of the chemistry community worldwide were invited to send a video recording of them saying or singing an element name. Boys from Y9 contributed Samarium and Dr Turner contributed Manganese.
